NAME ^

XML::RSS::PicLens - Create a PicLens compatible RSS feed

VERSION ^

This document describes XML::RSS::PicLens version 0.04

SYNOPSIS ^

  use XML::RSS::PicLens;

  my $feed = XML::RSS::PicLens->new;
  $feed->add_content(
    link      => 'foo.jpg',
    image     => 'foo.jpg',
    thumbnail => 'thumbs/foo.jpg',
    title     => 'An bootiful foo'
  );
  print $feed->as_string;

DESCRIPTION ^

PicLens is an immersive media browser that can be launched directly from a web browser when visiting a supported site. It uses RSS autodiscovery to locate an RSS feed describing the available media. This module provides a simple interface for generating such a feed.

See http://piclens.com/lite/webmasterguide.php for more information.

INTERFACE ^

new

Create a new XML::RSS::PicLens object. XML::RSS::PicLens is a subclass of XML::RSS; any arguments to new are passed to the superclass's constructor. The RSS version defaults to 2.0.

add_content

Add media content to the feed:

    $feed->add_content(
        link            => 'foo.jpg',
        content         => 'foo.jpg',
        thumbnail       => 'thumbs/foo.jpg',
        title           => 'An bootiful foo',
        content_type    => 'image/jpeg',
        thumbnail_type  => 'image/jpeg',
    );

At least one of content, thumbnail must be supplied. Optionally you may supply link and title. If these are omitted they will default to values based on content or thumbnail.

The optional content_type and thumbnail_type items may be used to specify the MIME types of the content.

For backwards compatibility with previous versions image and image_type are accepted as aliases for content and content_type.

add_image

An alias for add_content for backwards compatibility with previous versions. Use add_content in new code.

as_string

Gets a string containing the XML for the feed.

CONFIGURATION AND ENVIRONMENT ^
